Despite that success, Eklund's reputation has taken more hits than Eric Lindros's cerebellum. The mere mention of his name on sites like the HF Boards draws more jeers than cheers. While there should be no question about the legitimacy of many of his informants, he has been known to cultivate his rumors from such solid sources as Carolina Hurricanes fans on Internet message boards and callers to WFAN in New York.
At the FHF we have never purported to offer anything but snark and strippers, with some decent analysis from a fan's persepctive thrown in. But Eklund claims to be a hockey insider, and needs to be called out on the seedier side of what he does. Definitely worth the read.
